Why Wear Protective Headgear in Non-Contact Sports & Situations?

If you have ever experienced a head-related injury or watched your child take a serious hit during game-play, you understand the importance of protective headgear. Whether the regulations require headgear or not, it is important for you and/or your child to protect themselves and limit the risk of head injuries that could have potentially long-term damaging results.

Throughout the years, I’ve participated in all different kinds of sports, and coached or watched many more, and most of them are of the non-contact variety.  But I’ve also witnessed an abundance of head injuries that frankly could have been avoided with the right headgear. Collisions still happen, and without the right protective headgear they can be even more dangerous than in a fully padded environment due to athletes still moving at comparable speeds and when head to head or elbow to head or similar collisions do occur, they can be very dangerous.  Aside from direct head to head collisions, as a flag football enthusiest and event organizer for FlagSpin, I’ve witnessed concussions from simply falling back flat on the turf in jump ball situations, on the basketball court after a dunk or block, taking knees and elbows to the head in soccer and in practice situations, and in many other scenarios. You just can’t predict when protective headgear will be needed in any specific moment, so our athletes have them on constantly, in game and in practice, because whether you’re a child, in high school or an adult playing any number of sports, head injuries aren’t something to take lightly.
